Democrat lawmaker calls conservative justices ‘horsemen of the apocalypse’
June 26, 2017
Hawaii Democrat Mazie Hirono on Monday said she’s waiting for a fourth judge to join Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas to round out the trio she’s dubbed “the three horsemen of the apocalypse.” The lawmaker’s absurd statement came in response to the court’s decision to allow portions of the Trump administration’s anti-terror travel ban to stand.
Hirono said the court’s move to lift part of an earlier injunction on the travel ban was “hardly a victory,” before demonstrating that she has very little understanding of the policy or what the court actually did on Monday.
“It’s still a Muslim ban and by lifting part of the injunction, by creating a category of people who are trying to come in, to try and create a bona fide relationship, I don’t know what that means,” she said.
It means, of course, people trying to enter the U.S. from countries where terror training is known to occur have to demonstrate that they have a reason– a job, family, close friends, education– to enter the country.
Hirono’s statements are pulled directly from Democrat talking points designed to make the travel policy appear as a religious test of some sort for admittance to the U.S.
That was the issue at the heart of an injunction against the Trump ban from the 4th Circuit Court earlier this year.
Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch all noted that they would have had no problem lifting the injunction against the ban with no such stipulations. And it’s likely that the position will carry when the justices take a closer look at the case this fall.
“The Government has made a strong showing that it is likely to succeed on the merits – that is, that the judgments below will be reversed,” wrote Justice Thomas, supported by Alito and Gorsuch. “The Government has also established that failure to stay the injunctions will cause irreparable harm by interfering with its ‘compelling need to provide for the Nation’s security.’”
The three argue that the compromised version of the travel ban given the green light by the court provides massive loopholes that will ultimately undermine national security.
And for their concern, Democrats like Hirono contend that the conservative justices are evil.

DHS – February 18, 2016 –
The Department of Homeland Security today announced that it is continuing its implementation of the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 with the addition of Libya, Somalia, and Yemen as three countries of concern, limiting Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals who have traveled to these countries.
Last month, the United States began implementing changes under the Act. The three additional countries designated today join Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria as countries subject to restrictions for Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals.
“The Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 was passed into law within the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2016.
MSM tried to say that there was not a visa ban on certain countries across the world, this act stands in opposition to their lies.
“(ii) VALIDATION OF PASSPORTS.—Not later than October 1, 2016, the government of the country certifies that it has in place mechanisms to validate passports described in subparagraphs (A) and (B) of subsection (a)(3) at each key port of entry into that country. This requirement shall not apply to travel between countries which fall within the Schengen Zone.”.
SEC. 3. RESTRICTION ON USE OF VISA WAIVER PROGRAM FOR ALIENS WHO TRAVEL TO CERTAIN COUNTRIES.
Section 217(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1187(a)), as amended by this Act, is further amended by adding at the end the following:
“(12) NOT PRESENT IN IRAQ, SYRIA, OR ANY OTHER COUNTRY OR AREA OF CONCERN.—
(D) CCOUNTRIES OR AREAS OF CONCERN.—
“(ii) CRITERIA.—In making a determination under clause (i), the Secretary shall consider—
“(I) whether the presence of an alien in the country or area increases the likelihood that the alien is a credible threat to the national security of the United States;
“(II) whether a foreign terrorist organization has a significant presence in the country or area; and
“(III) whether the country or area is a safe haven for terrorists.
Typical Democrat. If it isn’t in their interests and within their myopic vision, then it is to be classed as evil and lies. Gee, what could possibly go wrong with that line of thinking.
If this senator and other Democrat congress members had such an issue with the “very idea” of a Muslim ban THEN WHY NOT SPEAK OUT AGAINST ITS INCLUSION IN HR 2029? Didn’t she actually read the bill or remember what was in it? Why didn’t any of the lamebrain Democrats raise h$ll over this issue then or during the many opportunities prior to its passing? For that matter, why didn’t Obama veto that portion of the bill or instruct DHS to use executive privilege and NOT follow its law?
Oh but wait, it was their “demigod” with feet of clay then…
Again I find that fact checking from MSM isn’t thorough, imagine that.
